Saint George the Great Martyr, Half - Hand Painted Icon

[Model: HND_st-9011]

Byzantine Hand Painted Icon of Saint George the Great Martyr.


Saint George the Great Martyr came from Cappadocia and was a member of the Roman Army. He showed great boldness and courage and for this, he gained the attention of the Emperor Diocletian, but he could not escape the persecutions that Christians faced in those years. Saint George did not deny his faith and was sentenced to beheading.

His remains, together with that of his mother, were taken to Lod in Israel where he was buried. Eventually, the Crusaders took them to the West.

Saint George the Great Martyr is the patron saint of the Greek Army and England. From the 12th century onwards, he is usually depicted slaying the dragon, a depiction that carries many different approaches.


Apolytikion

Liberator of captives, defender of the poor, physician of the sick, and champion of kings, O trophy-bearer, Great Martyr George, intercede with Christ God that our souls be saved.


Hand-Painted Icons occupy a valuable place in ecclesiastical art because, beyond their obvious artistic value, a hand-painted icon unites man with the holiness of the depicted person.


For the Hand-Painted Icon of Saint George the Great Martyr, our experienced painters use traditional techniques and high-quality materials that offer excellent depiction and durability over time.


All our Hand-Painted Icons are painted with egg tempera, while you can choose the size of the icon, the decoration of the background, the language of the inscriptions as well as the type of wood you wish to use.
